A Community to Call Home

Revelation is the last word God chose to speak in Scripture. Last words are typically meaningful and often poignant. How can this "last word" speak to us today? What can we learn about Jesus Christ beyond what is shared in the Gospels? What can we learn about worship? About victory through sacrifice? About the Final Judgement, the New Jerusalem, the return of Christ, and New Heavens and a New Earth? Join us for this study of the vision of St. John, Revelation  - The Last Word, beginning September 9: Sundays at 5:00pm.

Anchor’s marriage retreat is one of the highlights of the year for our community.  This year we return to the Gloucester Inn by the Sea on October 19-21.  Cost is $250 per couple, which includes two nights lodging, breakfasts and one dinner.  We are delighted to welcome Dorothy and Christopher Greco as our guest speakers.  Dorothy’s recent book, Making Marriage Beautiful, has encouraged many marriages since being published.  For more information, email Space is limited, so register soon!



Global Impact Focus

Nov 4 - 11

Anchor’s annual Global Impact focus begins with an International Dinner on November 4 at 5pm in the auditorium at 41 Berkeley.  One of the things that makes this night so great is everyone bringing dishes from their native country.  You can bring a main dish, side dish or dessert, or any combination if you would like to bring a couple of dishes!  We will have Global Impact partners joining us to share updates on their mission.  Then, GI partners will be guests in our Crew gatherings that week. Finally, the GI Focus week ends on November 11 with Faith Promise Sunday.  Be in prayer for what God would have you trust him to provide for your 2019 Faith Promises.  Together, we can change the world,  one person at a time!


On Vision Sunday 2018, Pastor Randal shared a new initiative with our community, The Discipleship Project. This project aligns with the mission of Anchor Boston, which is “to lead people toward exchanging misconceptions about God for truth, becoming worshippers of the Creator rather created things.” Discipleship and being a worshiper of the Creator are intertwined. For, to truly be a worshipper of God is requires every aspect of our life being wholly submitted to him; that Jesus Christ is the center, spirit, and glory of all that we are and all that we do. 

The Discipleship Project is intentional, to develop discipled leaders. The following are short-term intensive modules that are offered:

Module 1 - Pivot: focuses on establishing spiritual practices which will assist the participant in making a 180 degree pivot as a follower of Christ.

Module 2 - Know: a study in Systematic Theology covering such subjects as the existence of God, attributes of God, Trinitarian doctrine, the earliest creeds of the Church, the Incarnation, redemptive/covenant love, and Eschatology. (Pre-requisite is Pivot)

Module 3 - Defend: designed for those who desire to learn how to defend their faith by studying Judeo-Christian Apologetics.

Module 4 - Share: crafted to equip participants in personal evangelism by teaching the basics of how to live a contagious life as a follower of Jesus (Pre-requisite: Defend)

Module 5 - Lead: designed for followers of Christ interested in spiritual leadership in community. 

Module 6 - Alpha: focuses on the big questions of life in this exploration about the meaning of life. Ideal for people on the fence about the Christian faith.

Upcoming module schedules will be posted on our homepage.



An exciting part of our community at Anchor Church is our Anchor Crew community groups! Our crews provide a space for groups of like-minded individuals to interact with each other, with strong foundational theology, and with God, offering a safe place to explore life and faith. While attending, members of a crew can expect to build strong relationships, have life-giving spiritual discussion, and experience encouraging times of corporate prayer. Crews meet all over the city!

The fall crew session begins the week of September 9. Sign up here!
